The Reborn Identity: "Lauren's Opus"
Angelo Badalamenti: Laurens Walking (from The Straight Story) Opus III: It's a Fine Day
A simple intent from a genuine-hearted man, Alvin Straight, is the focus of The Straight Story. He will journey across two states in order to visit his estranged brother who's recently suffered a stroke. Hitching a trailer to his lawn tractor, he sets off from Laurens, Iowa. His destination: Mount Zion, Wisconsin.
The modest optimism of the film and its soundtrack are given a more hopeful lift here by Opus III's It's a Fine Day. Sweet and lilting, the track transports us to a place alongside Alvin, watching the landscape pass by, most any simple thing seeming possible.
